Study Abroad & Intern or Volunteer in Thailand
We have two amazing NGO Development Internships located in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Both will provide you with insight into global development issues and NGO operations in an international context.
On our LGBTQ+ NGO Development placement, help promote local initiatives through advocacy and education. The aim of the NGO is to foster acceptance, encourage safe-sex practices, and reduce teenage pregnancy in the process. Rights and safe-sex messages are important to the organization and activities include HIV/AIDS outreach, education, treatment and prevention as well as advocacy.
Our second placement involves NGOs that tackle a wide variety of initiatives ranging from care for the elderly to children’s rights. Gain insight into the workings of an NGO in the context of Thai culture and learn about some of the key tasks and challenges facing NGOs in Chiang Mai. Additionally, you will gain insight into the role of funding and help with research, report preparation and online and social media marketing!
But wait! Interested in combining your internship with a study abroad opportunity in the field of Business? Want to extend your trip another four weeks? We’re offering Thai Culture & Business classes at a well-regarded Thai university in Bangkok. This means you could earn up to 6 study abroad credits towards your major in addition to your internship hours!
